The Digital Art Gallery Tour celebrated their one-year anniversary this past weekend, but the honor goes to Kwashee Totimeh who founded the movement in 2014.
Kwashee founded the Digital Art Gallery Tour to bring interactive art expos to the modern day. With the tours, he opens up opportunities for various brands and artists, giving them a different market to advertise to. Kwashee has traveled to the DMV, NYC and more cities promoting the tour’s mission an connecting individuals on the east coast.
He has also had the pleasure to work alongside VH1’s Black Ink Crew, Walt; and headlines his photography during each event.
The day party included vendors, artists and performers from the span of five cities.
